M-Track - Pulsating buzzing noise when using headphones


I've owned my soundcard for some time now (1/2 years). The issue I'm having is specifically with headphones. Anytime I plug a pair of headphones into the soundcard it makes a quite, pulsating 'buzzing' noise. I've tried all my headphones (3 pairs) and they all do it when plugging into the soundcard yet with other devices such as mobile phones, laptops, computers or tablets theres no issues at all.

I haven't changed anything at all with my setup in recent months so I'm rather confused as to why this is happening. I'll also mention that this isn't affecting my monitors at all, only headphones.

Thanks for reading,

    Hi Joshua,

    Thanks for posting!

    What kind of headphones are these? Do you use any sort of 1/8" to 1/4" adapter? If so, have you tried different adapters?

    Does the sound change based on the position of the Monitor Mix knob?

    Make sure to test this with different USB cables and ports. Even a different computer would be helpful (just plug it in and plug in some headphones).

    Let me know!
